    The 2017 EcoChallenge has both inspired and motivated me to try a little harder to reduce my carbon footprint.  New behaviours (eating less meat, studying drawdown research and solutions) are becoming new habits.  It is wonderful to view the team feeds and to know we are collectively having an impact.

    This EcoChallenge has been, for me, both instructive and encouraging. I hope that NWEI and the Project Drawdown organizers continue to build on it and engage our best efforts beyond Earth Month...  It would be excellent to sustain and build on the impact of individuals, even as we recognize the need for systemic, cradle-to-cradle policies that...

    Many of the actions offered through Drawdown are habits of living for us.  For example, I burn next to no gas on my commute upstairs to my home office. (smiling)  I am fortunate to be semi-retired and working part-time with a trusted longtime colleague.  Based in a faraway city, my colleague handles client-facing meetings, and engages me to...

    Last night, my life-partner and I had an extensive discussion around the Drawdown quiz in the NYT, originallly published in June 2017.  Although we are committed permaculturists, we still learned a lot from this exercise. Highly recommend. I may return to it in 6 months to ensure the knowledge sticks! Here’s the link if you’re interested:...
